Quote’s of the Day – 9 February – The Memorial of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824) & St Miguel Febres Cordero Muñoz FSC (1854-1910)

The Church is the only one, the Roman Catholic!
And if there were left upon earth but one Catholic,
he would be the one, universal Church,
the Catholic Church,
the Church of Jesus Christ
against which the gates of Hell shall never prevail.”…

“The heart is rich
when it is content
and it is always content
when its desires
are fixed
on God.”

Thought for the Day – 9 February

Thought for the Day – 9 February

It seems at times that the saints begin with an unfair advantage.  Today’s highlighted Saint, Miguel Febres Cordero, was born with a Club foot.  At the age of five Our Lady appeared to him and he who previously could not stand alone or walk, ran to her – from then on his disability vanished!   Where is our ‘unfair advantage’?   Is it not in running to Him who waits in the Tabernacle?   Our Lord is truly with us, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity – is this not an unfair advantage?

St Miguel, Pray for us!
